Had the oportunuity to stay here for 2 nights in July 2014 for the Mecum Car Auction at the Farm Show complex. As I was traveling by myself my only concern was a convinent location, clean, and priced fairly. Although dated, the property is well maintained. The staff were all very courteous.

The staff was somewhat courteous at first, but not so much if you need their shuttle. The room was not up to date. The tv barely worked. It was semi clean. No bed bugs! Run down and out of date though. And housekeeping tries to run you off an hour or 2 earlier than the 12 pm checkout. Howard Johnson... More

The first room we were in had no shower head and was dirty. The next room was filthy too. The bathroom ceiling was dusty and nicotine stained. The towels were dirty from sitting in the cruddy room. Curtains shredding, old bedspread, dirty tub, dirty light switches. Ugh! There was a large, neatly tied garbage bag next to the soda machine.... More

Room was very clean and spacious. Room had sliding door to the outside (great to let fresh air in). Breakfast was decent (waffle maker, fresh fruit, bagels, cereal, etc). Hallways to room need updating. Better than the Econo lodge and Super 8 near by.

I booked this stay on Priceline and they gave it a two star rating. It was the most runner down place I have ever stayed. Stains on the walls, peeling wallpaper, rips in the bed sheets, ceiling was falling in, and more unkept, unclean, unmantained. I should have known by the low price.
